Reader comment on item: Open Mecca to the World

Submitted by Jack Sheridan (United States), Aug 4, 2022 at 23:45

It seems like the West is very quick to lower standards when it comes to Islam. Apparently banning 2 billion plus polytheists (Indians and Buddhists from Asia) constitutes tolerance.
"The Koran, at 9:28, bans only polytheists from the Great Mosque—it doesn't prohibit every non-Muslim from visiting Mecca."
